SpineMED Decompression Therapy
A Drug-Free, Non-Surgical Answer for Neck and Low Back Pain!
You no longer have to live in debilitating pain. The SpineMED decompression system is a conservative procedure for patients suffering with bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica, failed back surgery syndrome, and non-specified mechanical low back or neck pain.
The gentle distractive forces of the SpineMED decompression system create a negative pressure within the injured spinal disc with a patented, FDA cleared decompression technique. This improves blood flow and nutrient exchange to promote the healing of injured discs. Most importantly, rendering a significant reduction in the disc bulge or herniation, releiving the pain from the nerve pressure. The SpineMED system utilizes several cycles of spinal decompression and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
Therapy sessions last 45 minutes, 4-5 times a week for 1 month; transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond. Many patients feel significant pain relief upon beginning treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
The complete program targets the function of the stabilization muscles as a vital part of spinal decompression work. Chiropractic adjustments, core stabilization exercises and adjunctive therapies such as heat, electric muscle stimulation, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these supportive structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
Regular home exercise and periodic follow-up visits will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been reported to be effective in 75-85% of the patients treated. Studies continue to show that patients find long-term relief and effective management of their pain when they complete their program of treatments utilizing the SpineMED decompression system.
